Hi! I'm Aaron Lanning, I'll be completing my last year at CSU this year. I grew up in Macon, GA where I've lived my whole life. My mother was an opera singer, and is now a vocal professor, so I grew up exposed to classical music all the time. I started playing bassoon in 6th grade, after trying a multitude of different instruments, the bassoon finally clicked with me. From there I wanted to be a part of everything that I could around me. I joined a local youth orchestra, and then I commuted to find one of better quality. I have performed side by side with the ASO, worked with their first chair, Andrew Brady privately for two years.
